Carter Lumber is growing its presence in Pennsylvania with plans to open a prehung door manufacturing facility in York County. The project, which will also serve as a millwork distribution hub, will support the combined creation and retention of 212 jobs, according to the company.
The new facility will serve the eastern Pennsylvania market, along with markets in Baltimore, Md., New Jersey, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The project includes the purchase and renovation of a 64,300-square-foot warehouse. The renovations include plans to expand truck doors and parking areas, laying stone, and allowing the facility to accommodate manufacturing and storage. The Kent, Ohio-based dealer is committed to investing $6 million into the project.
“Carter Lumber is grateful for the support of Governor (Tom) Wolf, the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and York County, as we expand our operations with our new manufacturing facility in Hanover,” said Jeff Donley, president of Carter Lumber. “The manufacturing done at this location will not only add jobs but will also allow us to better serve the homebuilders building homes for Pennsylvania families, now and well into the future. We are excited to get the renovations of the facility completed and to begin shipping products to those homebuilders as early as the end of this year.”
Carter Lumber operates 14 retail and showroom locations across the state of Pennsylvania and more than 160 locations nationwide, including truss manufacturing facilities and prehung door manufacturing locations. The company recently expanded into New Jersey by purchasing the seven properties of the now-defunct DuBell Lumber.
